Hospital doctors have established “virtual wards” whereby patients with covid-19 are managed at home, monitoring their own oxygen levels—and freeing up staff and beds. The primary aim of some of these wards is supported early discharge; others are referring patients directly from emergency departments and primary care.

The virtual wards were planned at the beginning of the pandemic to avoid hospitals being overwhelmed, but doctors say that as well as keeping people with covid-19 out of hospital if they do not need to be there, patients are less anxious.

This free webinar brings you examples of innovative ways to assess and manage patients in the community with suspected Covid-19 including national guidance virtual ward pilots.
